It was such a shame when Jetmagic and Duo went from the UK scene. They were two good carriers but set up at the wrong time. It is also a shame that Loganair, manx and brymon have lost their identity to BA. Although loganair is bringing back it's true colours on it's Islanders.
BMI regional would be a good airline if it was run slightly away from BMI. Although do they don't fly all domestic they have a brilliant route structure.

Loganair might operate in BA colours but they operate they're own services. They've really improved the number of Scottish flights they offer in the past twelve months, and I think if BA were still operating internally in Scotland you wouldn't see half the flights that LC operates. You only have to look at what BA have done with CityFlyer, Brymon, British Regional and Manx to see that! Okay, so times change, conditions are harder, etc, but BA has mutilated its domestic operations away from London, MAN and BHX.
Also, Air UK/KLM UK can be added to the list of lost carriers, now being part of KLM CityHopper. It had a regional presence at one stage, particularly before KLM started using it primarily as a feeder carrier to AMS.
